MOST COMMENTED

[APPALACHIAN STATE] The most remarkable story of the men's season has been Appalachian State, which has gone unbeaten in 10 games -- the third longest active unbeaten streak in the country -- following the death of Coach Shaun Pendleton on Sept. 7. The Mountaineers will put their unbeaten streak on the line Saturday when they host Furman in the Southern Conference.

Assistant coach Matt Nelson was named interim coach following Pendleton's death and the Mountaineers immediately ran off four straight shutouts against Gardner-Webb, Detroit, Coastal Carolina and Hartwick at tournament over consecutive weekends.

Defense has carried Appalachian State (8-2-3), which has scored only 18 goals in 13 games. Its three goalies, Danny Free, Collin Taylor and Paul West, have eight shutouts between them and allowed only six goals.

Only unbeaten New Mexico (14-0-2) and Cornell (8-0-3 in its last 11 games) have longer unbeaten streaks.

The Mountaineers are first in the Southern Conference, where they are seeking their first regular-season title since 1989.

They will be tested against Furman, which is 11-2-3 and won the last six matches against Appalachian State dating back to 2005.
